Florida State receiver Warren Thompson apologized Sunday night for comments he made last week in which he accused the Seminoles’ leadership of lying to him and jeopardizing his health.

“With all the fear in the world, the confusion and concerns regarding this matter may cloud judgment on this arising problem in this country,” Thompson wrote on Twitter. “My apologies on comments earlier this week that did not accurately depict my feelings toward this program and (its) leadership.”

Thompson, an Armwood High alumnus, said that he was “grateful for the diligent efforts” and that he and first-year coach Mike Norvell are moving forward.

Last week, the redshirt sophomore accused FSU of lying to him about health-related issues and said he was ridiculed for bringing them up. Norvell said he did not know what alleged lies Thompson was referring to.

“This team is on the same page,” Norvell said Friday. “That’s where I’ll leave it.”
